The Big Lottery Fund's Awards for All programme has awarded Share a £9729 grant for our 'Happy Healthy Life Project', aimed at improving the health and wellbeing of people with learning disabilities and autism.
This project will enable 30 people with learning disabilities and autism to address and overcome some of the fundamental health and wellbeing issues they face around hygiene, sex and relationships, stress, illness and poor physical health. The project will also embed new learning in our team and enable us to deliver and sustain comprehensive health and wellbeing activities long-term.
The grant will help us deliver more sessions involving physical activities and sport, and also allow us to provide more support on understanding friendships and relationships.
The project builds on our current health and wellbeing work to support more people to live happier, healthier lives.
